About the Authors
  • Source-sink theories provide a simple yet powerful framework for understanding how the patterns, processes and dynamics of ecological systems vary and interact over space and time. Integrating multiple research fields, including population biology and landscape ecology, this book presents the latest advances in source-sink theories, methods and applications in the conservation and management of natural resources and biodiversity. The interdisciplinary team of authors uses detailed case studies, innovative field experiments and modeling, and comprehensive syntheses to incorporate source-sink ideas into research and management, and explores how sustainability can be achieved in today's increasingly fragile human-dominated ecosystems. Providing a comprehensive picture of source-sink research as well as tangible applications to real world conservation issues, this book is ideal for graduate students, researchers, natural-resource managers and policy makers.

    • Integrates information from the past two decades of research, offering a comprehensive picture of source-sink thinking for those new to the concept
    • Presents new approaches for modelling population dynamics across landscapes, giving advanced students and scholars the latest tools and techniques to guide their research
    • Includes tangible applications of source-sink theory to real world conservation and management issues, providing natural resource managers with a toolbox of strategies for integrating it into on-the-ground decision making
